Hello, I have finally got the nerve to look for groups of dads that may have similarities I'm going through. I have a 3 year old daughter and 8 month son. My ex left me Feb '15 due to me cheating. She came back in March and we conceived our son. He is now 8 months, and he still breastfeeds so I cannot have him on weekends like I do my daughter. I thought I forgave myself and put it in the past, but I seem to reflect on my decisions and my regret. Luckily, I get my daughter most every weekend, and can see my children, an hour away, anytime I can visit after work. It is still not the same coming home to them each day. When I get my daughter, I try not to be too strict, but I find myself being a tough parent. I dont want to mess up and my ex try to use anything against me, even though we get along. Even though its been well over a year and half like this, its still so very tough. Can anyone relate? I just want to enjoy my children, worry free, unstressed and not so much authoritative. How can I think differently or change my viewpoints to be happy again?
Just wanted to say hello and am truly sorry for all your sorrows and all that comes with depressionIve been struggling along time and am really trying to get my life together.Im.so lonely and im sure most of you are too.
I am a single father: I am not in my daughter's life because my ex and I have stopped speaking to each other. My ex has used Family Court to hurt me and prevent me from being in my daughter's life. Since I am a single dad, what can I do to help myself? I have no desire to get get together with my ex. I also need advice in coping with the dating scene as a Single Father.
